Good on ya, Sue! You'll make it fine.

Patootie, we're all thinking of you!!

colin - mick'n'phil will definitely NOT be that slow!  they would whizz past everyone!

sue, you will love it.  have a great time.  don't worry about what time you finish in.  as someone pointed out to me last year, you all get exactly the same medal, whether you finish in 3 hours or 8 hours.

((patootie)) hope you're ok.  i thought of you at my appointment at the migraine clinic yesterday.  there were some newspaper cuttings about migraine in the reception and in one of the articles was a bit about acupuncture for fibromyalgia which some patients found particularly beneficial.  maybe it's something you could try if you are able to.

Waves weakly at everyone .. hello ...

 It's all been happening .. I never got over my January cold .. I went from bad to worse .. to bad again .. even now my sinuses still feel like they are filled with sludgy concrete  .. had to sit up in bed for a week or I couldn't breathe ..

On top of all that I've had computer probs .. (all sorted now thank goodness) .. and whilst lying propped up in bed (or sprawled in my recliner chair with blankets cuddled round me) .. for days on end I made some major life changing decisions

So the cold is pretty much on the mend now .. but still got a horrible hacking cough .. and when I start coughing I can't stop .. it's really debilitating  

And .. trumpet fanfare please .. I am moving .. I have applied for a sheltered housing apartment in Cambridge .. some of the reasons that helped me come to a decision were due to things I had said to me here in Runners World Forum ..  

 You see .. where I live I am stuck out in the wilderness .. no incentive to go out and do things .. nowehere to go even if I did feel like doing something .. in Cambridge there are lots of societies or clubs for disabled folks to be active .. I NEED that .. I WANT that .. I AM going to have it .. and to get all that I have to move .. so I've asked Social Services to come and assess me .. and I have also applied to a housing association for one of their lovely apartments .. ohh I do hope I get one of these .. it's just perfect

 Living in Cambridge I will only be a short disability scooter ride away from lots of things to do .. shops, museums, arts, theatre, shops .. and loads and loads of things .. mainline train station .. cheap taxis (unlike here where it's £20 each way into the nearest town .. ) .. I just KNOW I shall be much healthier, far more active and woohooo dare I say FITTER too ...

Ohh my gosh it's going to be so hard to move .. I've been here 25 years .. but it's the right time to move .. I think I knew that .. but needed a shove from some friendly Runners World Forummers to start me thinking seriously about it .. thank you .. it was nothing specific .. but it just made me face up to things ..  although how on earth I am going to find the energy to pack, sell, give away everything I don't know .. and shop for the new place .. when I get it .. (and it could be weeks or months before I get offered a placement ) ..

Thank you everyone who've posted to ask where I was  .. and very special thanks to  Chuggs, Screamy and Colin .. my HUGE apologies for 'ignoring' your missives .. when I finally got back online properly yesterday I had SO MUCH post waiting for me .. family and 'business' came first .. then thought I'd better pop my head in here to show I was still 'alive' ..  

Tired out .. sore headed .. red nose .. funny voice from all the coughing .. but now well on the mend ..

Much better than you think ..  as I do believe it was your goodself with a few others who've prompted me to consider my future ... and I'm quite excited about moving from my rural 'idyll' to a city metropolis .. just not looking forward to the actual moving part ..
